Salam Adil · May, 2008

- not my real name. Why? I run a well known Arab company and blogging lets me say what I really think without worrying about who is reading. I am an Iraqi who has lived nearly all my life in London.

Without blogging you would only ever see the journalists side of the picture.
Finally – I also blog. You can read my thoughts at http://asterism.blogspot.com
